Staying focused with a revised job description

Personal photo taken in Seattle

One of the most helpful things we have done this year was revising our job description.  We eliminated a number of things that we were not doing or did not need to be doing and highlighted a couple of key areas important to us.  We feel like we now have received permission and blessing to operate in our areas of strength.

My revised job description does tell me what I do not need to be doing.  However, Michael Hyatt’s post on making “Not to Do Lists” may be an additional tool necessary for me to stay focused.

    I really like this idea! I find that so many of my colleagues are maxed out… they need a way to narrow down what they do. I also need to do this now and then – take a look at what I am doing and see if any can be/should be dropped. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this idea.

    Hyatt’s blog is a great resource for me. What helped us in revising our job description is that we all did it together–well, that was the idea anyway. Helps us to avoid overlap in roles in our leadership team.
